Original Items: Only One Set Available. From the bleak Aleutians to the isolated airstrips of the Pacific, US Navy pilots of WW2 were issued the M-445A sheepskin leather flight jacket for winter weather. This US Navy WW2 M-445A is in good condition, with small tearing to the left reverse shoulder. Otherwise, the jacket is in fine shape, with no other damage to the tough sheepskin leather construction, which still remains fairly supple and pliant. Most interestingly, it boasts a warm sheepskin fleece lined collar and interior, sports a brass front zipper (non-functional) and bears the classic US Navy black and gold nomenclature tag at the interior neck that reads:
JACKETS, WINTER, HEAVY
Bu AERO- U.S. NAVY
SPECIFICATION M-445 A
FREID OSTERMANN CO.
CONTRACT NO 1406-A
It features button closures at the front pockets and TALON zipper which is fully functional. One small tear on right shoulder otherwise offered in very good condition. A nice example of a very rare, original Original U.S. WWII Navy Sheepskin Winter Flight Jacket M-445A.
